Brunettes, Here's How to Test-Drive Going Blond
It's our prerogative to want what we don't have: bangs, long nails, a different hair color. For brunettes, their hair color is a shade worn like a badge of honor. But even the most devout brunettes might be tempted to take a walk on the blond side. Most of the time, however, you don't want to waltz into a salon with a chocolate mane of hair and resurface with a head of pale, ice-blond hair — unless you're Kim Kardashian.
Granted, Kim had dabbled in the blond bombshell look before, so while going platinum, it wasn't completely out of line. Not to mention, she loves to play with the length of her hair too — changing up her hair is part of her image. But this isn't about what Kim does or doesn't do to her hair. It's about you, dear brunettes, and how you can wade into the blond pond gently and maintain the declaration that you are, still, a proud brunette.
